    Adapted from Decoded, Meltzer's hit show on the History network, History Decoded explores many fascinating and unexplained questions. Is Fort Knox empty? Why was Hitler so intent on capturing the Roman "Spear of Destiny"? What's the government hiding in Area 51? Where did the Confederacy's $19 million in gold and silver go at the end of the Civil War? Did Lee Harvey Oswald really act alone?

    This is for any one who loves Brad and/or his show. Mystery enthusiasts, conspiracy theorists...you will love this book! So many interesting mysteries of era's past well researched by the author. He is very honest about his opinion, facts, and theories. Unsolved mysteries are left to the readers discretion, and solved mysteries are so much fun!

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes I would because it is very interesting to read about the upper hierarchy of Scientology and it's evolution.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lawrence Wright? Why or why not?

    Yes It was well researched and written.


    What about Morton Sellers’s performance did you like?

    He has a pleasant voice, it has good pitch.


    Did Going Clear inspire you to do anything?

    NO!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is really a biography of L Ron Hubbard and not very much about Hollywood as the title would make one believe. It also differs from other books about Scientology in that it is about the executives and the upper tier of members running the Church. Other books are written by younger x-Scientologists for example and paint a different picture of this world. I found that reading this along with other books from different perspectives helped me really understand this religion which I was very curious about.It is a bit horrifying at times to believe these things are occurring in modern society and also how strongly people are "taken in" for lack of a better phrase. So cult like, I am almost afraid to write a review!
